He was voted player's Player of the Season by his teammates in the following two seasons. Lescott moved to Manchester City in August 2009 for a reported £22 million and spent five seasons at the club, winning two league titles, an FA Cup and a League Cup. After his release in 2014, he joined West Bromwich Albion on a free transfer and Aston Villa a year later.
Internationally, Lescott represented England at various youth levels before making his first team debut in 2007 against Estonia in the UEFA Euro 2008 qualifiers.
